Well, there's a bit of a problem here, because ALL molecules at atoms experience London Dispersion forces, and both of these molecules are polar. However, single hydrogen bonds can form between the -OH of ethanol and the O=C of acetone. So, the best answer would be A, B and C, but I am guessing they want you to answer C).
